NRL Women in League

by NRL

The National Rugby League's vision for women and girls is to ensure they continue to be included, respected and engaged equally in all aspects of Rugby League.

Over 190,000 women and girls are participating in all forms of Rugby League (touch, tag and tackle) and with female participation the fastest growing category in the Game, it is more crucial than ever to continue to build a success platform for further participation and engagement.

The Harvey Norman Women in League Round, occurring in Round 20 (July 20 – July 23), is a way to acknowledge the role of women in the game, particularly their contributions at a grassroots level.

2017 started with a bang for women in our game with the Indigenous Women's All Stars team defeating the Women's All Stars for the first time. We also saw the inaugural Women's Country v City match played and during Women in League Round the Women's Interstate Challenge will become the first female Rugby League match broadcast live on TV.
